This paper examines the experience of Thailand and her neighbouring countries, particularly Cambodia and Lao PDR, on bilateral employment agreements. It first gives a brief history and description of the economic and institutional environment under which these bilateral agreements - in the form of Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) - were forged, proceeds to summarize the lessons learned from the implementation of the MOUs, and finally makes recommendations for future bilateral negotiations.
